WRRC Library Mission
The WRRC Library is committed to creating a learning environment in which women can thrive. We seek to provide academic support to the UC Davis campus by offering a collection of educational and informative books about women and gender. Our research library includes educational material about women's issues and concerns and promotes an understanding of the role and impact of gender in our lives and our society. Our poetry and fiction collections are dedicated to the writings of women authors, with a special emphasis in international, LGBTQ, and women of color.

In an effort to reach students of diverse backgrounds and interests, our collections cross topics of race, ethnicity, class, age, sexual orientation and numerous other subjects that include or effect women. Our hope is to address women's concerns locally, personally, and globally, as well as to generate dialogue on issues to dispel myths and stereotypes regarding women (and men) and to point out the diversity of women in order to value those differences and respond to those differences. The WRRC Library offers both academic and popular resources in order to benefit the campus.
